NorCalNick: Arguably the biggest positive surprise for Cal basketball last year was Justin Cobbs. The Minnesota transfer stepped almost immediately into the starting lineup at proceeded to average 12.6 points and 5 assists per game. I think most Cal fans expected Cobbs to have a major impact, but I don't think we necessary expected that he would become a focal point of the offense in many ways. So to start off this roundtable, what do we think we'll get from Justin this year?
Vincent S: In an interview, Montgomery threw out Crabbe and Cobbs as players that he thinks have a nice chance at jumping to the NBA after this season. While we've expected great things from Allen Crabbe, Justin's emergence last year was a revelation. He showed nice aggressiveness and heart, often taking over games when the team needed him most (e.g. vs. Oregon). He developed a reliable jumpshot to complement his penetration skills; he also led the team in 3-point attempts (albeit on only a few attempts) for much of the season - an impressive proposition when Allen Crabbe is on your team.
